The wood came exactly as described with no knots or splitting. Finish was great, all I had to do was cut to size and attach. Just some light sanding to finish. I was very pleased with the look and quality of the pieces.

Both cherry and walnut 1 x3 x3 ft boards had a 1/8" twist. Did not effect the projects they were bought for but wouldn't be good for large projects. The various dowels purchased at the same time were excellent.
